UC is not an IVY SCHOOL never will be SUNYIT only took 3 out of 10 student for its freshmen class ave gpa was 90% or better
UC goes to NYC and offers everything and takes everbody
SUNYIT is the one of the best schools in the area and will grow to likes of collgate and hamilton
UC will go down to a school like devry
So all you UC ALUM save your dollars or give to a better school LIKE SUNYIT WILDCATS RULE
SUNYIT invests a lot in its dorms and campus because the academics are 5th rate (on a scale of 1-5 with 1 being Harvard and 5 being SUNYIT). SUNYIT uses its state dollars from SUNY to build fancy condo-style dorms with tennis courts high on a hill overlooking the Mohwak Valley. The college looks to recruit 5th rate students with its campus and dorms rather than its academic programs. Trust me, academics will be one of the last things on the minds of prospective students checking out SUNYIT. Just look at how all of the academic buildings (there are 2 of them) are huddled together at the bottom of the hill next to the puny library, while the sprawling dorm villages are nearly half-a-mile uphill where the gym, meal hall and hiking tails are.

The architects must have planned the school figuring that, if the academic programs ever fall through, the campus could always be turned into a for-profit apartment/hotel community.

Filled with scum bags with ties and collar shirts. Nasty girls and plenty of diseases, and that's the workers alone. The truth.

THe only thing UC has is a Football team and that is after They gave out Free college to several area players who could not get in to any other school
UC sports is second rate just above high school

i got out after my freshman year...horrible school...it's for students, if you want to call them that, who need babysitters all day and want to drink at night and on weekends. 7 days a week. this is not true academia.

Lets face it SUNYIT is building and moving UC is trying but can never keep up
Better go back to giving a SU degree before UC is no more

You have hit the nail on the head! Where in Utica...who wants to live in a dead city such as Utica??? Utica College's biggest "selling point" for me was that I'd be basically guaranteed a job SOMEWHERE ELSE.

Sorry Proud UC Alum, but the people who are the problem still work there. UC is a joke. Interesting you write from Pittsfield,MA. If memory serves, I recall that is where the Dean of Students is from and visits often. I guess since he has only been given a year more (for reasons that are obvious to me and most UC students and alums) he is spending his pre-retirement creeping Topix.
What are you implying?

Utica College has lost all sight of academics they think they are a sports college. I never give to their annual fundraiser for that reason. Save your money and go to a real college

It started years ago when i went there. They were on a big push to bring trash of all kinds from the city and see where it has gone.

Tons of awesome athletes from Whitesboro, ND, and New Hartford playing at UC. So good to see these wonderful local athletes opting for a quality education at a local D3 rather than attending larger, nicer, and more prolific D1 programs.

So many parents are still telling their kids to go to college, like really? STFU, because you obviously don't know whats going on in the world of colleges right now.

Anyone thinking about going to college, or want to learn without college, you should get the "Degrees of Debt" book on Amazon Kindle. You can also get it for your parents because it will help them STFU!

You can make just as much money by NOT going to college. What do you get for like 40k a yr? Or whatever UC costs. I make 80k, wife makes 60k, neither of us went to college, we do fine.

Do NOT take online courses from this school. The material is outdated. I was taking Cyber Security online. First professor i had gave you all the test questions in advance. When I ran into some technical problems and asked for help, I was told that was not hid job. Really? Thought you were being paid to help. Next professor told us to buy the textbook and figure it out ourselves. Finally told the school enough when my last professor redid the course. No one could make any of the tools work and the professor would offer no help. RUN from this school.

UC is pretty bad. I am an alum, enjoyed my time there and have done well. I'm not living in the lap of luxury, but I had some good mentors there. However, I have grown discouraged seeing the reports each year on the students. It seems they attract many students who are not academically prepared for college and the students flunk out. I have many friends who still work and teach there who say the same thing.

I was also pretty embarrassed to see #joinedtheherd as UC's hashtag. I just found it out of place and offensive. Something to tie into the traditions would have been a smarter choice.

No university in the states is "like" Harvard. Good grief. Some may offer
comparable programs, yet we all know studies are just one part of
the Harvard "experience."
